Giving it an overall rating out of 5:
Leave your BlackBerry behind and switch off your mobile - this place was made for relaxing and you won't want any interruptions while you're here...
The Vilamendhoo experience starts before you even set foot on the island, with a seaplane transfer from the airport. Flying over turquoise waters and pearl-white isles sets the scene for what's to come. And from the sky you can really appreciate just how pretty the island is.
The resort itself has been completely refurbished so everything feels box-fresh. The makeover comes courtesy of the owners of sister island, Meeru, and you can expect the same level of pared-back luxury throughout.
Take the Beach Villas, for starters. They're set in tropical gardens, so you get a real sense of privacy. For that added luxe touch, opt for a Jacuzzi™ Beach Villa. Or, if al fresco living is your thing, stay in one of the brand-new Jacuzzi™ Water Villas over on the sunset side of the island. They're perched on stilts in the lagoon and come with open-air rain showers, outdoor whirlpool baths and steps leading straight into the water.
The open-air theme carries through to the resort's two main restaurants. They're both buffet-style and housed in open-sided cabanas. What's more, this place is 24-hour All Inclusive so everything's taken care of. You'll find more menu options over at the à la carte eateries. Star billing goes to the over-the-water Asian Wok Restaurant, which serves up sizzling teppanyaki. Plus, a choice of three bars means you've got plenty of after-dinner options.
As for what else is on offer, you can be as laidback or lively as you like. There's an over-the-water spa and a house reef that offers some of the best scuba diving and snorkelling in the Maldives. Plus, you get taster lessons in things like snorkelling and windsurfing - and a sunset cruise - included in your stay.
